No deal: UN, France, Germany, Italy say climate treaty can’t be renegotiated, so that’s that

When President Trump announced Thursday afternoon that he’d be pulling the United States out of the ParisAgreement, he did add that he’d be opento renegotiating the terms as long as American interests were protected.

Considering the future of the very planet is at stake, after all was said and done Thursday, it turned out the United States didn’t need the climate accord, and the rest of the world didn’t need the United States to participate. The United Nations made it clear that no single party, certainly not America, could force renegotiation of the historic treaty that isn’t a treaty at all as far as the U.S. is concerned.
